All the freedoms taken away, all the money spent. Guess you can’t protect.
I admit my first thought was that this would end up being some confusion stemming from a language barrier. It will be interesting to watch this unfold. I do wonder why a man wouldafter the plane landed and parked at the jetway.
Update by Stephen VanDyke: For the lazy readers, the juicy part:
A witness said that the man frantically ran down the aisle of the Boeing 757 and that a woman with him said he was mentally ill.
The passenger, who indicated there was a bomb in the bag, was confronted by air marshals but ran off the aircraft, Doyle said.
The marshals pursued and ordered the passenger to get on the ground, but the man did not comply and was shot when apparently reaching into the bag, Doyle said. Authorities did not immediately say whether any bomb was found.
Crowded airport terminal, there’s gotta be a firsthand blogged account of this.
Oh, and who wouldn’t run away from a bag that had a bomb in it after telling an air marshall? Woops, looks like he decided to be a moron and take a jog with the bag. The shooting is a little more understandable now.
Another update by Stephen VanDyke: Remember the last time a South American guy didn’t cooperate with police and was shot dead (London)? Innocent…
Might want to reserve judgement on this one until all the facts are told.
